I'm maintainer of php pecl rrd http://pecl.php.net/package/rrd. I have the  
question about licensing. Pecl rrd packege in under PHP license, which is  
compatible with RRD license and PECL policy. But I got a request from some  
debian guy, that the PHP license isn't permitted for new debian packages,  
hence if we want to have pecl rrd php extension in debian I need to change  
license. What do you suggest me?
I want to stay the extension in the PECL for manual and tooling  
integration with PHP project itself.
I can switch the license to BSD type - see  
http://pecl.php.net/account-request.php, but I don't know if it's  
compatible with the rrd itself.
